Lost Childhood

Middle School #3 is one of 5 secondary schools in Pripyat. Located on Sportivnaya Street.
The Russian-made child-sized masks would have been kept on-site during the cold war era and were designed to provide protection against nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) attack.
30 years after the accident at Chernobyl Unit #4, the empty schools and kindergarten rooms in Pripyat (once the largest town in the Exclusion Zone with 50,000 inhabitants) are still a silent testament to the sudden and tragic departure.
